Gibson Les Paul Recording ( 1971 -1980 )
gibson les paul recordingIn 1969 gibson introduced 2 guitars with low impedance pickups these gibson guitars were called the gibson les paul professional and the gibson les paul personal .
Although the idea sounded great these guitars were short lived and off the market after 2 years in production , in 1971 gibson introduced the gibson les paul recording with higher expectations ,
the gibson les paul recording had integral transformers to make the output impedance compatible with normal high impedance amps, they had a single cutaway bound mahogany body , two slanted low impedance pickups with gibson logo on covers ( see pic ), rosewood fingerboards ,
2 high low impedance selector switches , bound peghead with diamond logo inlays and were made in various colors ( most early models 71-75 were made in walnut finishes )
the gibson les paul recording guitars were fairly succesful and led to the making of the gibson les paul signature and the gibson triumph bass in 1973 .
